Just because weed is legal in Colorado doesn’t mean you can spark up a blunt on the steps of a police station. Instead, you have to treat cannabis like liquor—and every six-pack needs a proverbial paper bag. In response to witnessing countless rookie mistakes, and we mean everything from smoking in public to hot boxing the hotel room, we’ve put together this guide specifically for smokers who are traveling to Colorado for the first time.

- Planning a Colorado Weedcation can be exciting, but don’t overlook the important details. Research the area, check out 420-friendly lodging, avoid potent edibles (especially if it’s your first time!), and be sure to pack a portable smoking kit
- Always research local regulations before visiting a new place. This includes regulations on buying, using, and traveling with cannabis, even in areas where recreational use is legal
